Taking advantage of the browser’s built-in web MIDI capabilities, Launchpad Intro enables users to remix songs within the Google Chrome browser using QWERTY keyboard, or using a plugged-in Launchpad.
Novation enlisted their “resident virtuoso” Harry Coade to create and perform an impromptu song, using the Launchpad Pro along with real-time synth, vinyl and object sampling.
Coade, the in-house engineer, producer and manager at The Blue Studios and co-founder of Sound Matters, (which uses found sound to raise awareness of environmental issues) discusses his creative process and how he incorporates Launchpad Pro into his work in this interview on the Novation site.
Users can take the components of Coade’s performance to try out the Launchpad Intro online player (using the Google Chrome browser) on the Novation website. Live users can also download Coade’s Ableton session for their own remixing and use.
